Mojo Came Back!

Here are two of the cards I completed today. Man, it's nice when the creative process flows...LOL


This first one is the embroidered one I referred to yesterday. I found some DMC floss that is metallic and had a few colors to choose from. I wasn't sure that I really liked this variegated color, until I decided to add some metallic gold with an American Crafts metallic marker. Now it works better for me. I found the pattern in a book, of course! It's hard to see but I did stamp a sentiment using PTI's Mixed Messages set. The word says Celebrate and I stamped it in gold ink. I attached those seed beads with nylon thread.


This card was inspired by one I saw on Dawn McVey's My Favorite Things blog. You can see my inspiration here. I used CTMH's pigment White Daisy ink on their Holiday Red cardstock. Because I've found this ink takes awhile to dry, I decided to heat emboss with with white embossing powder. The card base is Vanilla Cream (I think) with Holiday Red ink sponged around the edges. The stamp set is Guide Lines by Papertrey Ink. The ribbon is some I found at Michaels. The heart is a Martha Stewart punch and Embrace Happiness is from PTI's Mixed Messages set.

These are the first and last cards I made today. I will have to come back later and post the other two. I was pleased at how quickly these came together. Happy

I need to work on making dinner, but check back later if you like.

Look at all the great stuff!!!! Your mojo is always good. And yes, they did beat the drum and announce to the entire place that it was my bday before they sang to me. Farrell's was great!

Holy Moly, Jeanne! The first one had to take forever! You are a patient crafter. Love the ribbon on the second one.

The stitched card is awesome. Reminds me of a Spirograph (or whatever those fun things are called). I LOVE the red one. Beau-ti-ful!!!

Kathy is right, I immediately thought of a Spirograph(showing my age?!)when I saw your first card. How beautiful it is, though. And the second card is just sweet! Love love love the colors and that bitty heart in the corner is darling! Welcome back Mojo!! LOL!
